Pedestrian Injured after TV Highway Crash
Date: March 11, 2015
Location: Tualatin Valley Highway
Wednesday afternoon a man was flown to the hospital after being hit by a car on Tualatin Valley Highway.
A sedan heading eastbound went into the median lane on TV Highway. The car wanted to turn onto Southwest 185th Avenue and went into the median lane instead of waiting for the turn lane. A pedestrian was crossing the street, not in a crosswalk, and was struck by the car.
The pedestrian was flown to the hospital with injuries.
We wish the pedestrian a full and speedy recovery.
In a pedestrian v. car accident, the pedestrian is often seriously injured. In cases where the driver is at fault, the driver’s auto insurance will ultimately compensate the injury victim.
Your own Personal Injury Protection (PIP through your own auto insurance) still applies in this type of case, so use your own auto insurance to pay medical bills until you settle your claim with the at-fault driver’s insurance.
If you don’t have an auto insurance policy, then your health insurance will cover your medical bills. If you don’t have auto or health insurance, the at-fault driver’s PIP should cover your medical bills.
If you are interested in discussing whether you might have a pedestrian accident, call a Portland pedestrian accident attorney for help and a free consultation.
